–Sarah Hines, “Captivity, Resistance, and Female Empowerment: Narratives of Women’s Strength in the Work of Harriet Hosmer”

–Leah Haines, “The Temporalities of Work and Rest: Camille Pissaro’s Peasant Woman”

–Becca Blader, “Balance and Mirrors in Joseph Jachna’s Landscape Photography”

Each of these papers was drawn from the students’ ongoing or completed thesis projects. Congratulations to all those who presented, and to George Washington’s three speakers for their excellent contributions to the symposium.
